- Yet another great fob analog recording from Mark McCue!
- Two master cassette recordings were made (mics > D5 > D5). This source is from 1st deck out.
- Recording levels were changed at least four times to compensate for the soundman's abrupt changes.
- Set II tape flip cross-faded. 12 sec of Franklin's patched. Donor Rap and first 29 sec of Not Fade Away patched.
- All patches from MK41's>V3>SD744t. Recorded by Keith Litzenberger.
- All editing and mastering with UAD-2 in 24/88.2. SBE Free, meta-tagging w/ xAct
- Much thanks to Andrew Kolodjeski (loan of mics, stand and Sony D5s), Mary Orr, Ted Krzyzanowski and Alex Ford (mic stand blocking).

Have to agree with the first reviewer. I downloaded another recording that I thought was pretty good, but this does surpass that one.
I was about 30 feet back. I saw an "I" on the floor, so I guess that'd be for seated shows. Just as the second set started, I saw someone positioning themselves about 10 feet in front of me and 10 feet to my right. That had to be Mark.
This recording is a little brighter, has a little less low end, and has a clearer Medeski than other recordings of this show. So, if that's what you like, give it a listen.
$100 mics, a vintage deck, and finding the sweet spot...seems to do the trick.

The best source from 7/24
Thanks to Phil & Friends for another incredible show!
Do a side by side comparison. None of the OTS recordings have a clear, well balanced sound like this FOB. Turn this one up as loud as you want, it just gets louder :) Hats off to the Mark McCue. He's got a gift and doesn't need +5K worth of gear to prove it.
